What Are All Those Acronyms And Abbreviations You See Associated In Genealogy Related Material??; Included Is A Nice List From The Association Of Professional Genealogists That Will Answer Your Mysterious Acronym Questions

Hi Everyone!

Association of Professional Genealogists LogoHave you ever been reading some genealogy published material and happen to come across those mysterious acronyms?

Surely you have seen some of the following:

  • CG
  • DAR
  • FUGA
  • NGS
  • NGSQ

Even though you are a knowledgeable genealogist, I am sure you find it very frustrating to come across acronyms like the above and not really know what they mean.  And you are even more frustrated when the acronym is not even defined within the article you are reading.  You know how that is.  It goes on your “To Do” list to find out and probably sits there still.

The same happens with me which is why this time I wanted to dig a little deeper and find not only my immediate answer to one acronym, but perhaps uncover an entire list of genealogically related acronyms.

And lo and behold, thanks to the Association of Professional Genealogists, I was able to make a discovery of a very nice genealogical acronym list they have created.

You can access this very nice list at the following link:

Now if you come across that mysterious genealogy acronym you can quickly refer to the above list and have the answers at your fingertips.

Thank you APG (oooops, I better define that – Association of Professional Genealogists.  Their logo above nicely defines the acronym!) for making this nice handy acronym list available to us.
